In Clodagh’s Kitchen Diaries, Clodagh McKenna has created an essential cook’s companion, taking you through a cooking year—each month is loosely based on an event, place, or activity in Clodagh’s life, like January’s super foods, April in New York, and October’s Christmas preparations and Halloween.
Packed with advice on what to eat when and tips for preserving the harvest, her mouth-watering yet deliciously fuss-free recipes include dinner party menus to impress, monthly soups, salads, sandwiches and vegetable specials from her restaurant; and cakes for occasions such as Mother’s Day, Easter, and Christmas. Think Red Velvet Cakes for Valentine’s Day, Orange and Cardamom Pancakes for Mardi Gras, and Fish of the Month dishes like Pan-Roasted Lemon and Basil Salmon.
From winter movie suppers to summer barbecues, Clodagh has the perfect recipe for every occasion in this fantastic guide to seasonal food you’ll turn to time and time again.
Clodagh McKenna studied in France and New York, trained and worked at Ballymaloe Cookery School and has two restaurants, in Blackrock and Dublin. She is a regular on US TV including the Rachael Ray Show. www.clodaghmckenna.com
